Estella Solomons’ centenary passed in 1982 without public attention, and even her death in 1968 was not widely noticed. Yet she was important in Irish history as a very fine painter and etcher and as an Irish patriot. A member of a distinguished Jewish family, wife of a respected poet and man of letters Seamus O’Sullivan, friend and hostess to most of Dublin’s literati and artists, Solomons was a considerable personality with many facets. She was also a very beautiful woman, as various photographs and self-portraits testify, and one of a generation of remarkable and independent-minded Irish women, relatively few of whom have been given full recognition. This engrossing documentary shows us why she was important in all facets of her long and active life.
